    None of them. You forgot Dukes of Hazzard and A-Team. Both better than choices above Odin. On a side note thought someone was making a Dukes pin and started a thread awhile back.

    #3 5 months ago

    I'll throw in A-Team and Knight Rider, but Dukes was more 70s to me. I'll add all three to the poll.

    #4 5 months ago

    The Dukes started in 1979. But ran til 1985. Only 1 year in the 70s. 6 in the 80s. I'd say it was an 80s show

    Ok thanks, Married With Children too but it was late 80’s.

    Knight Rider and A-Team were internationally successfull.

    Many of the rest not so much (or decades later) or I never even heard about them.

    #8 5 months ago

    MacGyver.

    #9 5 months ago

    From that list I'd say Dukes.

    The 60's has the best TV themes.

    #10 5 months ago

    I’ll vote MacGuyver, but I write in American Gladiators (though like dukes issue above, it may have more in the next decade)

    Dukes of Hazard by a mile!

    Quoted from chippe01:

    Serious?

    #17 5 months ago

    My actual votes go to Dukes of Hazzard and the A-Team. I thought Quantum Leap could have potential with those that like futuristic time travel stuff. . . then I looked/learned the show did not start until 1989! I must be getting old as I sure thought it was totally 80s.

    #18 5 months ago

    I vote dukes of Hazzard and the A team.

    #19 5 months ago

    Dukes would be good, but the the debbie downer pc police would cry due to the Confederate flag on the car.....

    #20 5 months ago

    I voted for the Dukes, but I always remembered this show from the 80s...

    Knight Rider "Turbo Boost" ramp wohoo

    #22 5 months ago

    No Magnum, P.I.?!!!

    #23 5 months ago

    I cannot upvote Robotech/Macross enough. Huge fan and have a sizable collection of valkyries. So many good choices from the 80's. Magnum PI no doubt, Night Rider, Dukes of Hazzard, Miami Vice, Air Wolf, and Sledge Hammer all solid. My vote from that list would have to be A-Team. Great characters, cool vehicles, humor, guns, and over the top action.

    Never thought about it at the time, but it was amazing with all the shooting that happened in that show that no one was ever hit/killed. I think I remember reading that someone did die in one episode, but it was not from the good guys shooting.

    #25 5 months ago

    Oh, the shit I come up with when I've been drinking.

    I was sure I had Hill Street Blues in there somewhere.

    #26 5 months ago
    Quoted from NorCalRealtor:

    The 60's has the best TV themes.

    Even the 70s was way better.

    I got a feeling this is as close as we're gonna get to any of these. Although I think somebody might have done an Airwolf already.

    Whhhatt? No Manimal?

    #28 5 months ago

    This is a fake quiz by Odiner

    The answer is none of the above!

    #29 5 months ago

    A list without Alf is an incomplete list.

    Sorry, Brewsters Millions is a movie and doesn't count.

    WKRP

    #33 5 months ago

    That's a tough one...i would always see it as 70s although it could be argued.

    #34 5 months ago

    I agree. If it was born in the 70s it is from the 70s, which is probably what this thread should have been about in the first place.

    It was just one of those middle of the night brainstorms I did to see if I was up to the challenge of even typing it all out. Which if I remember correctly, I could barely do.

    And I'm surprised nobody mentioned Family Ties or Full House yet.

    Another reason why Magnum, P.I. is the genuine choice.

    Noe you're picking shows I could barely make it through once or twice. I probably saw more episodes of Doogie Howser and Punky Brewster.

    #37 5 months ago

    The obvious choice is American Gladiators. First season of course.

    Malibu!

    Anyway I'm right in line wiht the voting...Dukes or A-Team would be the easiest. Of course I'd take a Sledghammer for sure but that wouldnt go over too well.

    Yeah the PC crowd that grew up watching it would be up in arms now.

    #40 5 months ago

    add (none of the above) probably will win.

    I just tried and it won't let me now. Must be some kind of a time limit or something on doing so, but I agree.

    If we could get in a time machine and go back 30 years, I'd fully be in on Sledge Hammer though. Most entertaining show to me at that time. It was darn funny and right up my alley.

    The most hilarious scene I remember was a helicopter crashing into a cliff, exploding into a fireball, and crashed down to Earth. Two guys stumble out and act like they just got a little dizzy. Too funny.

    Oh of course....it was the live action GI JOE

    Cop Rock was/is officially the worst show ever made.

    B.A. got shot in one episode by another team member (Murdock) if I recall correctly.

    Not quite, you can get alot closer.

    Anyway, what about He-man, Transformers, Gobots, GI Joe etc etc?
